Statistics Don't Lie

 

What You Need To Know About the Danger of Policing in America

FBI reported 295 officer fatalities in 2021. For the same period, Officer Down reported 451, but included 284 COVID deaths, 44 from 9/11 related illness, and more that just don't make sense to include. 

No. Not compared to being a logger (870%), a fisherman or even a crossing guard. Much of the perceived danger is inflated as part of the American narrative. 

Well, using FBI's 2020 statistics, and 2020 data from FatalEncounters.org, 295 officers and 2084 citizens were killed. That means that .8 officers died by any means, and 5.7 people were killed by police. 

In summary, you are 7 times more likely to die at the hands of the police, than an officer is to die for any reason.

“My son was autistic and in mental health crisis after his son was stillborn. SWAT shot him from 30 yards away, from the turrets of a Bearcat, through a closed kitchen door. I was there with my crisis response team trying to get to him.

“Timmy was shot because they said he was armed and threatening.
But the knife they said he had was in another room.”
Sabrina Courtroul
“They said Sarah shot herself in the mouth with a Judge Revolver, while handcuffed behind her back.
Witnesses say she was shot execution style by the officer.”
